The Victory Formation:
Former Denver Broncos QB Jake Plummer has weighed in on Tim Tebow. In an interview with XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix, Plummer praised Tebow’s ability as a winner and a “baller”, but expressed his thoughts on Tebow’s overt Christianity as well.
“Tebow, regardless of whether I wish he’d just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates, I think he’s a winner and I respect that about him,” Plummer told XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix on Monday.
“I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ then I think I’ll like him a little better.”
Also, Plummer adds:
“I don’t hate him because of that,” Plummer admits, “I just would rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoff.”
I see both sides here. One of the tenets of Tebow’s faith is that he should evangelize and spread the word, but I kind of agree with Plummer that not every word out of Tebow should be The Word. At the same time, it’s nice to see Plummer offer some words of encouragement and some positives about Tebow’s play.

“I had a coach that, regardless of how well I thought I was playing or how well the majority of fans across the country thought I was playing, it was never good enough for him,” Plummer said, not bitter but very matter-of-fact. “And that kind of gets frustrating...
